Qualified Sites Program

Qualified Sites Program & Shovel Ready Property

The Qualified Sites Program, also known as shovel ready sites, combines national site selection standards and the region’s strengths and assets including site availability, logistics, infrastructure, and utilities. The sites listed may also include build-to-suit options.

This initiative has been launched with the collaborative efforts of many municipal partners and regional developers and will grow through a widening collaborative net.

Sites that are seeking to become qualified should contact their regional economic development organization to discuss the process and qualifying criteria.

For sites in Winnebago County, please contact Rockford Area Economic Development Council at 815.987.8118.
